Photographer captures 'image of Jesus' in a wave

Religious imagery can show up in the unlikeliest of places - as evidenced by one recently captured photograph.
The image, which resembles the outline of Jesus, was captured on camera by photographer Tracey Bosworth during a visit to Babbacombe, England on December 7th.

"I have a relationship with the sea," she said. "I spend most of my time on the coast. It's where I am happiest. I love watching the waves and I love taking photographs."

"Combining the two is my idea of heaven."

"I noticed due to high tide and effects of Storm Barra, the waves were splashing against the steps that lay horizontally to the beach, almost along its full length. The waves were quite big at times."
"I took lots of photos but it wasn't until I was going through them to find one or two to put on social media that I came across this image with God in it. I was so excited. I feel really blessed!"

Whether or not you assign spiritual significance to the photograph will depend upon your own religious beliefs, however it is certainly possible to see the resemblance.

In all likelihood, however, this is a prime example of pareidolia - the tendency for the human brain to perceive meaningful shapes in otherwise abstract patterns.

Well, to be honest, I'd be an atheist too if there was light in which it would be clear there is no higher power (usually called God).  I've got some faith that simply is in my head, but I'd consider it a psychological phenomenon, a need to believe. It wouldn't be enough for me, I guess.  But the Universe is not chaotic. Nothing would ever come into existence if there was only chaos. There has to be more. That's where I see that, what people call God. Of course, it's never my intention to suggest my opinion is in any way significant for anyone else. It's just my opinion. I often roll my eye... [More]

That isn't even GOOD pareidolia. And besides, Jeebus wouldn't appear in a wave. That'd be more a Poseidon/Neptune thing. Jesus does do well with bread products and pavement stains, though.

Can’t we all just sit back and imagine Jesus was at a baseball game and was photographed doing the wave with all the other sports ball fans? Maybe even take it a step further and say that Joseph took he and Mary to the game after working a construction gig where he finished early and under budget so this was his gift to the family. Live baseball, hot dogs, popcorn, and a mug of wine.
